Thaurorod Posts New Song Online

Melodic metal band THAUROROD has posted online a new version of the song "Into The Realms Of Hidden Me," with the new vocalist Markku Kuikka. The version is a rather raw one, but the band promises more and better previews for the coming album, "Upon Haunted Battlefields."

"This demo song is 100% home-recorded and mixed/mastered. The song will have a new better mix in about two weeks and at the same time we will release the title song of the new album "Upon Haunted Battlefields". But take this just as demo version. The actual album versions will be completed during next year on Spring/Summer.

"The idea of releasing these demo songs is just to give you a track with Markku Kuikka on vocals to listen.
Anyway we hope you will enjoy what you hear and please give us a word!!!," says bassist Pasi Tanskanen.

The guitarist of the band, Emil Pohjalainen, has recently joined the ranks of AMBERIAN DAWN.

Amberian Dawn Posts Update

Finnish female-fronted symphonic metallers AMBERIAN DAWN have issued the following update:

"This year has been amazing for us and big thanks goes to all of you fans around the world! We had really successful European tour with EPICA and all the shows, especially last show in Paris, will stay in our memories forever! What makes it even greater was that one-third of the shows were sold out! We have had a lot of fun playing to great audiences and spending some time with many fans after the shows. Four weeks together in a tour bus went very quickly and there was a great sense of humour among bands and our excellent tour crew. Great memories. But biggest thanks goes to our great fans, as said we had chance to meet many of you and we will make sure we will be back soon!!" More...

Finnish Epic Metal "Amberian Dawn" Set To Debut

Up and Coming Finnish epic metal outfit Amberian Dawn have recently opened their official MySpace in preparation for their independently released debut. The band is now recording their forthcoming full length album at Rockstar Productions' studio, scheduled to be out this fall against a flurry of hugely anticipated Scandinavian releases from several veteran bands.
As stated by frontwoman Heidi Parvianinen (Agonia) in a recent interview "Finland is the promised land of metal! There are a huge amount of metal bands in Finland and the competition is hard and the level is high. You have to have something very special and some luck too to brake through."
Their two promo tracks, "River Of Tuoni" and "Evil Inside Me" have been posted at the official site, and indeed convey a special sound that is sure to stand up to unavoidable comparisons to Nightwish, who also have a release scheduled for late 2007. You can catch the group in a few select clubs in Finland prior to their first major tour:

19.9.2007 Turku
27.9.2007 Tampere

Stay tuned for more updates on Amberian Dawn and their progress!
